My son was dx on June 14, 2010 with T1. He was 16 months old. After coming home from the hospital I got on jdrf’s website and requested lots of information including a mentor in my area. I also signed up to be a volunteer and asked to be on their mailing list. A couple months went by and I heard nothing. I came across someone who does work with jdrf and she knows the community coordinator in my area. She took my information and said she would pass it along. I never heard back. After we passed his 1 year anniversary, I decided to try again. I sent JDRF an email and also called and left a message. The next day I called again and got through. The woman apologized and said she would send him a hope bag and also pass my information along to their volunteer coordinator. 5 days passed before the volunteer coordinator called me. Unfortunately, I wasn’t available and she had to leave a message. The same day I called back and left her a message. The next day I left her another message. That was over a month ago and I still haven’t heard back. I am not sure what my next step will be. I want to attend a support group in my area. If there isn’t a group, I want to devolop one. This would be much easier if I had support from jdrf.
